The calm before the storm…

Continuing with our nascent exploration of the players and teams that have served to expand the parameters of set-piece execution over the years, we find ourselves plonked slap, bang in the lower tiers of the Austrian pyramid.

The year was 2013 and, unfettered by sporting norms, SC Weiz decided that their crunch encounter with SC Fürstenfeldbruck was the perfect time to deploy what has since come to be known as “The Crappest Freekick Routine Ever Attempted By Anyone Ever”.

Just one look at that unorthodox set-up – two accomplices kneeling, four yards away from the dead ball with faces at waist height – and you know, deep down in your waters, exactly what is going to happen next…

Possession immediately surrendered and a teammate left nursing a depressed cheekbone. Textbook.

The snort of derision from behind the camera just serves to complete the sorry vignette.
